I’ve been open these days. Open to having the Divine show me something new. Show me something really, really cool. Something mind-blowing. Something healing.
I walked into a brand new, nicely put together yoga studio last month. It was filled with head-wrapped, feather wearing, healthy-eating yogis. We were all there for an ecstatic dance event. There was a sweet woman all in white, tucked in the corner giving out essential oil samples while we waited to enter the main studio.
Because I had some time to kill, I grabbed my generous serving of an herbal tea sample and headed over to the woman in the corner. “What do you have here?” I politely asked, not really having much interest. She said she was sampling essential oils. I asked if she had something for the nervous system. She handed me an oil. I smelled and I thought, “Ok, that’s nice but I guess it just smells good. This fun scratch and sniff ordeal will kill a little time while I wait for the big event.” Then I get to talking to her a bit. I explain I’m a healer who has done a lot of my own healing over the past 5 years and I still have a couple symptoms I’m working on healing now. She looked at me like she was gazing at a sunset for a minute. Then she handed me something. “Smell this one,” she said.
What happened to me in that moment was nothing short of magical. Love filled my body and gratitude filled my eyes. I began to cry. But, it wasn’t me crying you see. It was energy. Moving through. Caused by one little magical bottle of oil. I hugged her, for what seemed like ten minutes, but was probably only shy of one. I proclaimed, “I had no idea they were so powerful.” She replied calmly, “It’s your time.”
So this nay-saying, oil-doubting healer woke up that day. I am forever changed. Essential oils aren’t just these nice things that smell good, that massage therapists sometimes use to cover awkward, accidental smells that may happen behind those closed doors. No, that’s not it at all. Actually, it’s so far from it.
These oils are magical. They are plants and seeds and barks. The ones she shared with me that night are therapeutic grade and they can literally replace your entire medicine cabinet.
They heal emotional wounds. They detox your body. They can be used instead of steroids as an anti-inflammatory. They can be used in place of antibiotics. You can clean your house with them. You can meditate with them and help you connect with spirit. You can use as a sleep aid. You can clear your skin or mend your wounds or uplift your moods or even help boost your immune system so much that your tumors begin to shrink. There are countless healing properties and these are only a few examples.
These oils are nature. Western medicine is synthetic and can’t fuse with your cells. The oils are phyto nutrients so they can actually merge with your cells and heal you on a cellular level. They are “God in a bottle” as I like to say. Natural healing at it’s finest. There are countless uses for these little blessings. This brand is ingestible because it is so pure. You can even cook with them!
Most are even safe to use on animals. My dog had gone deaf because of the antibiotics his vet put him on for an ear infection. I was devastated because I didn’t know if his hearing would come back. With a little reiki, time and patience, he ended up getting his hearing back but I was weary of ever doing that to him again. A few months passed and my sweet boy found a few-day-old salami sub on the side of the road, causing his allergies to act up and yet another ear infection to manifest. This time I had to think outside of the box. I was new to the oils but I grabbed my oil bible and looked in the dog section. Five days later, after a little bottle of an oil called purity rubbed in his ear, my little guy is ear infection free, no deaf side effects.
I’m hearing numerous stories of people whose lives have changed by using these oils. They allow us the opportunity to heal our bodies naturally, on a cellular level. They support us, repair us, relieve us and love us. And I sure as heck love them too.
My hope is to bring these oils to those who need them the most. People like me, who have no idea what’s in store. I want to connect them to the people who will appreciate them and benefit from their selfless magic as well.
